Answer

You face everything a civilian does when arrested for DUI: driver’s license suspension or revocation, a possible jail sentence, and insurance points. But if you’ve been arrested for DUI on Fort Bragg – assuming you’re an active service member – you also face consequences to your military career.

These consequences could include demotion, or perhaps even dishonorable discharge, depending on the circumstances.  

The stakes are high for active service members arrested and charged with DUI on Fort Bragg. Ordinarily, DUI is a state case, so the local district attorney would prosecute it. But Fort Bragg is property of the federal government, so jurisdiction falls to the federal courts (specifically the Eastern District of North Carolina, with locations in Elizabeth City, Fayetteville, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh and Wilmington). It’s important that the defense attorney you choose has experience handling cases in the federal system, given how much is at stake here.
